Valentines Day Perfect Gift Team Contest

As Valentine's Day is approaching and so many people are looking for perfect gifts for their friends, co-workers, class-mates, neighbors and loved ones we decided to help all of them to find special and unique presents they are looking for. Russian Artists team held a contest among its members to select three wonderful gift ideas for Valentine's Day. The contest has got a huge support among Russian Artists team members. We had fifty nominations in total with every Etsy team member shop nominating one of its items. It's amazing how many beautiful items has been created by our talented team member shops on Etsy for this event!

Each team shop had a chance to cast its vote and select three items from a pool of fifty wonderful and unique hand made creations. Many shops shared their concern that it was actually hard to make a decision as all of the items in the contest were superb. Forty five member shops voted and three winners were selected.

Although the original idea was to select just three items as ultimate winners, three more pieces pretty much shared the fourth place. They are definitely worth presenting as our fourth place winners.

So glad I was not one of the judges... how can one decide on a winner amongst such talent?

Yes, I do like the heart installation... but then... the pendant is so beautiful and delicate...

What a brilliant competition, Etsy, Thank You! x

Since I make jewelry, I am partial to the Modern Garnet earrings hand made with argentums sterling silver. They are so well made and designed.
